We’ve now got Britain’s superfight two look forward to between Josh Warrington and Carl who Frampton, like Canelo and Golovkin, are also at the top of their game and as somebody said to me, it is like the apex of the sport.
It is two guys right in their pomp, who have not been bashed up or seen better days. Carl has lost one fight, which is not the end of the world, and has come back and shown he has got plenty left in the tank. Josh is on the up and we have a fight between two guys who are bang in form and that is what it is all about.
We’re not talking about a fight between people who are being recycled and are not even the best in Britain, we are talking about one where both fighters are in the top four in the world in their division.
You’ve got to hand it to Josh for being prepared to jump straight from the frying pan of defeating Lee Selby – which most observers said he wouldn’t – and into the fire of Frampton when he could have bided his time.
He wants to be in the biggest fights and that is what he’s got, and Carl for accepting the challenge to determine who is the best. The rest of us are in for another fistic treat just before our Christmas feast.
